5.0 out of 5 stars Best Shoe for Support & Cushioning, August 10, 2012
By 
This review is from: Brooks Men's Trance 10 Running Shoe (Apparel)
These shoes are top notch quality. They have excellent cushioning that is built into the shoe and not thru a cheap sock liner like Nike does.

I have some serious problems with plantar fasciitis or as some call it fallen arches. I also wear custom orthotics. I wear my orthotics in these shoes & they are about the only ones that I can wear that keeps me pain free. These shoes have just the right balance between support & cushioning. They have a nice soft cushioned footbed under the sock liner, so that when I take the sock liner out, my orthotic does not sit on a rough hard piece of canvas like you see in shoes like Nike that are very expensive yet cheaply made.

The gel cushioning in the sole of the shoe is where the real cushioning comes in. It makes it easier to stand on concrete all day without my feet & back hurting. I've worn Brooks Trance shoes for about 5 years & can't see buying anything else now. I wore Asics for about 12 years & thought they were great until their wild colors caught on with the kids back in the 90's & Asics tried selling quantity over quality. I tried Asics best gel Kayano's last year and after 2 weeks my feet were hurting badly.

Brooks Trance are the best balance of support & cushioning on the market. Yes they're expensive but you get what you pay for. If you have problems with your feet like I do, try a pair, you'll never turn back.

Yes --- I have the same take on ASICS. Too much emphasis on glitzy colors and puffing up the "latest and best" type of buzzwords touting their newest innovations. And then the fabric on the inner lining failed with 2 successive purchases. (The ASICS shoes developed holes in the fabric and foam underneath --- but this came from everyday casual use and not hard-use from running.) I now have 2 pairs of Brooks and am about to buy my third --- the Trance model. Have been proceeding cautiously and carefully on this switch so as to get the best fit. I wear these as my "everyday" shoes which includes "at the office" where casual wear is the norm. And I use them for my cardio exercise which is limited to using an elliptical machine. Which also produces very low stress and wear on my Brooks "everyday" shoes. (I no longer run on the track or street as I can't risk the stress and pounding on my knees.)
